Great progress with CLA
 
I started taking CLA a couple of weeks ago and while my weight hasn't decreased that much, my belly fat has gone down a lot, and my pants are looser around the waist. I read that it works even better if you take borage oil with it, so I'm going to get some, but I'm impressed so far with just the CLA.

That is awesome, I'm glad its working for you.
I've been taking it for about 3 weeks now, after reading all the threads on it. I have to say that, so far, I'm pretty underwhelmed with my results. But I'm willing to give it more time and hope that something kicks in soon.

I started taking it about 2 weeks ago as well, with the borage oil. I also do weight training 3 days a week and yoga another 3 days a week. Not sure I notice any difference, but the only it hurts is the bank balance. ;) I do an official "measure" of all the important parts every Saturday, although I only started measuring last week, so we'll see.

How much of the CLA and Borage Oil are you taking? I have had some in the cupboard for ages (both), but stopped taking them quite awhile ago. Starting up again based on scintillady's Post I had also read in another Thread. :) I don't remember the proportion of the two I took back then. I'll probably start with what scintillady uses, but not sure about the Borage Oil.

Why did I stop taking them? Don't really remember, but most likely after I retired, at the computer too much, stopped exercising and basically went to pot. :sad: My own fault.

I have 1000mg? Not sure the bottle is home and I'm on the road. I take 4 a day to equal about 3200-3400 cla. Also taking 4 a day of borage oil, but they are smaller pills and equal about 400-500 of the actual gla. Those are the recommended dosages to see a change, from what I have been reading.

Thanks. My GLA are only 240mg.

I have borage and primrose oil that I haven't used for a year or two.
Should I toss? I also grow borage for the pretty blue flowers so maybe I could try processing some . . . well, that's really not likely.

Mine are old too, but not expired though so am using. I understand that vitamins get weaker closer to expiration date so I assume the same for other things. I called a company once regarding B Complex going into the last month for expiration date and that's what the lady told me. :)
